We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

Bottle. Clear dark gold with a big white head. Aroma is tea like hops and some corn/wheat like malt. Taste is tropical fruit and a big alcohol burn. Thick sticky palate and strong carbonation. Not my favorite.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap 2SP. Pours a clear deep golden color with a white head that fades slowly with light lacing. Smells of fresh hops, citrus and resin. Taste light malt that gives way to hoppy citrus, then dries out with some resiny hops at the finish. Maintains decent malt balance throughout. Medium bodied, and crisp, with a slight stickiness and moderate carbonation.

I looked at the overall RB scores before picking up a 4-pack of this, but unfortunately I cannot agree with them after tasting it. The flavors were way too sweet. I felt like I was drinking a glass of sweet red wine. The hops lent a sour taste to the beer as well. I also tasted a bit too much alcohol flavor in the finish and aftertaste.

Bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours amber with white froth. Quite boozy, hoppy, plenty of pine. Doesn’t hide the booze like some other strong IPAs.
